    Warwick made in Germany tuners are in price range of made in China crap!!!
    For the same money probably i will be able only to buy made made in China crap!!!


    But even this money are very big to me right now so i guess for such money it is the best choise.

    Buy Kluson, if you don't have much money. It cost the same like Warwick Tuners but is still much better.
    Still I would recommend Schaller or Gotoh (Warwick never produced made in germany tuners, those were made by Schaller and labeled as WWs), but with small income, Kluson is the best solution.
    Otherwise look if you get Schaller or Gotoh tuners on the second hand market.

    Do you think guys it is possible to repair them. Maybe it will be cheaper?

    No, I don't think so. If you would weld it, the axis would always be a weak point which could crack, while you play.
    Trust me on this, I am mechanical engineer. I already nouned you the cheapest and best possibility with Kluson tuners.

    I live in Kiev and Kluson tuners might not be sold here in Kiev. And I have to buy them Internationaly which will put price to much bigger value.

    So i will think at options I can do!

    Hi guys.
    The miracle indeed happened.

    They found my lost postage even thought previus time they was not able to find it!!!

    Post scriptum:
    The main issue was that postage was send with out traking number so it was noyt possible to find info where it is.
    Also mail officer said that there was not writen tellephone on postage so she was not able to call me.
    Also my own issues were that i lost key from mail box and my cell phone usually is off and even when it is on 1 o not pick up unknown numbers.
